The Who frontman Roger Daltrey has slammed last year's (05) Live 8 concerts as "absolutely appalling". The 62-year-old singer was disgusted that celebrities were given seating in an enclosed area in front of the stage in London's Hyde Park, where The Who performed, because they ruined the atmosphere onstage. The rock veteran says, ''All the things that Live 8 was about in Africa, we did the same thing in Hyde Park - 'them and us' with the Golden Circle (the privileged access area at the front). "By the time we went on, the Golden Circle was exhausted, paralytic and asleep, and the real crowd at the back were going bananas.''

I love Roger. He's right again! The old poops should have been sitting in the back. A Who show is supposed to be like New Year's Eve in a nuthouse.
